The 17-year-old has been at Everton throughout his young career so far, rising through the ranks to represent the club at Under-18 and Under-21 level.

The defender has featured in first team squads but has not made an appearance for the senior side, despite being so highly-rated he has played for England at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 level.

The Athletic report that the Manchester-born youngster will continue his footballing education in west London and will be hoping he can make an impression on new manager Mauricio Pochettino, although he will first link-up with the youth teams at Chelsea.

It has been a summer of departures only so far at Everton with not a single new arrival yet at Goodison Park.

Sean Dyche’s side only narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season and signings are certain to come at some stage, but progress is slow.

A number of players have left, though, with the likes of Tom Davies, Asmir Begovic, Andros Townsend and Yerry Mina released and Moise Kean, Isaac Price and Niels Nkounkou leaving for fees.

Samuels-Smith joins the likes of Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson, Alex Matos and Diego Moreira in joining Chelsea this summer.
